    "Welcoming and appetizing through and through." ~ Wine & Spirits

    We've got this Landmark Overlook Chardonnay at the lowest price on the web, by far, and that's only the beginning of the good news. What's more is that this Overlook has it all: delicious citrus and light fruit flavors, toasty, nutty nuances, subtle spice and floral notes, all beautifully balanced with just the right amount of acidity and minerality. Pour a chilled glass and get to know it before you bring out the food. We love that it's not straight oak that's on the palate - there's some minerality and acidity too, which makes the wine so much more interesting to us. Bite-sized crab cakes with a dijon aioli are a terrific starter once you decide it's time to eat... Chicken roasted with tangerines, garlic and rosemary will pay tribute to the citrus in the wine very well. Or you could try a curried shallot sauce over grilled salmon steaks. If it's brunch or breakfast for dinner, our choice is a leek, asparagus, Gruyere quiche. Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed. This Landmark is all that and a bag of chips.

    Wine & Spirits:  Designated Top 10 Most Popular Chardonnay. "This wine’s “California” appellation masks the fact that it’s actually sourced from serious sites like Bien Nacido in the Santa Maria Valley and Lone Oak in the Russian River. The fruit is fermented in French oak barrels without inoculation, the wine offering all the cushioning and roundness expected from California, yet with impressive balance and freshness. It lasts on notes of pear and hazelnut, welcoming and appetizing through and through." Oct 2014

    Wine Spectator: "Alluring aromas of smoky, toasty oak and rich flavors of fig, apricot and melon give this an appealing, drink-me-now character. Drink now." Jul 2016

    Winery:  "On the nose, the wine features notes of Meyer lemon tarte, marzipan, toasted almonds, Asian pear, honeysuckle and a hint of Tahitian vanilla. On the palate, notes of apricot, clover honey and toast are in perfect balance with zippy acidity and bright minerality. Pair with lemon and garlic chicken with mushrooms."
